IPL New Regulations 2023
New IPL 2023 Rules: With the introduction of the Impact Player Rule for the IPL 2023 season, a significant shift in IPL history was made. The competition will otherwise adhere to the rules from the last iteration. The IPL 2023 rules are described in the sections below:
Two DRS will be used in the IPL in 2023.
Upon a catch dismissal, the incoming batsman will take the strike whether the batsmen have crossed or not unless it’s the final ball of the over.
The BCCI will try to reschedule the game for later in the IPL 2023 if any side is unable to find their starting lineup owing to COVID-19.
The IPL Technical Team will investigate the situation if rescheduling is not an option.
In the playoffs or the championship game, the club that finished higher in the league will be crowned the victor if the Super Over or any future Super Overs cannot be completed for any reason.
Impact Player Rule: What Is It?
Unless there are fewer than 4 foreign players in the playing Eleven, the Impact Player must be an Indian player.
The only foreign player who can be utilized as an impact player is one of the four substitutes listed on the squad sheet. There can never be a fifth foreign player on the field if a side adds an international player as an Impact Player during a game.
At toss time, teams must choose 4 substitutes in addition to the starting X1; but, only one of those substitutes may be deployed as an impact player.
The Impact Player will be proposed by the Captain.
Impact Players may be used before the start of an inning, following the end of an over, following the fall of a wicket, or following the retirement of a batter at any point in the over.
Players who are replaced by Impact Players (“Replaced Players”) are not allowed to participate in the rest of the game or come back as substitute fielders.
An Impact Player is not permitted to serve as a captain, according to the BCCI.
In the event that it becomes necessary, an Impact Player may replace a retired batter.
Each match allows for the usage of one Impact Player for each team. But, it is not required. Teams can decide whether or not to utilize the Impact Player.
If a player is hurt while fielding in the middle of the innings, he is unable to continue playing even if the team substitutes an impact player.
A substitute fielder may only replace an injured player in the event of an injury to the impact player during play if the umpires are satisfied.
The replacement is not allowed to bowl or serve as captain.
The player off the field for the replacement will be subject to penalty time for the batting and fielding teams in accordance with the game’s rules.
